Need to Know

You are not required to check in at the visitor center, but it is advisable to obtain current trail conditions and/or closures before heading out.

From Late March through April, controlled burns may be scheduled and some trails will be closed during burning operations. In addition, from April through July, you may encounter cattle in all pastures except Windmill. While these steers (not bulls) can be quite curious, they are not dangerous and pose no threat to hikers. Wherever you encounter a cattle guard, look for a gate off to the side for you to use. Please ensure that the gates are closed behind you.

Most trail junctions are marked with hunks of stone with a marbled map on top. Very helpful!
